A woman was killed and three people were taken to hospitals after two vehicles collided on a southern New Jersey roadway.
Galloway Township police say 33-year-old township resident Kathia Cruz was killed in the crash, which occurred around 6:20 p.m. Saturday on Aloe Street.
Police say Cruz was driving eastbound when she ran a stop sign. Her car collided with a sport utility vehicle driven by 38-year-old township resident Robert Gardner, forcing both vehicles off the roadway.
Cruz was taken to a hospital, but was pronounced dead a short time later. Two passengers in her car were hospitalized with “serious” injuries, but further details were not disclosed.
Gardner was treated for minor injuries.
A stretch of the roadway was closed for about two hours while authorities investigated the crash.
